[ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: the event is called earth hour. at 8:30, more than 7,000 cities all across the globe
11:05 pm
participated by shutting off lights for one hour in an effort to raise awareness about climate change and encourage energy efficiency. lights to the bay bridge and the golden gate bridge also went out as well as coit tower lights were dimmed as passer by looked on. >> climate change has been the topic for the last decade. i think it is a great event. >> it is certainly a fantastic endeavor and something we should all try to do. >> reporter: the worldwide event had a lot of help from a san francisco based company called cotap. cotap is a mobile messages service and it formed a partnership with the earth hour founders helping the thousands of volunteers across the globe coordinate events and post video and pictures to their mobile apps. >> folks are using it all across the globe. we are seeing photos and videos the last 24 hours from parts of australia, asia. it is really cool to see all the support they got across the
11:06 pm
globe. >> reporter: and all across the globe, other areas turned off their lights. in paris, the eiffel tower turned theirs off only for about five minutes due to safety reasons but it was a symbolic gesture in support of the cause. paris is planning an international climate conference to fight climate change. live in san francisco, christian hartnett, kpix5. opposition is mounting tonight against the religious freedom restoration act just signed into law in indiana. >> no hate in our state! >> hundreds marched through the streets of indianapolis to protest the law. they worried it could give businesses the right to refuse services to gays and lesbians on religious grounds. many people we spoke to today in san francisco had the same worries about that law. and a similar bill now sitting on the governor's desk in arkansas. >> it does seem like a slippery slope. because you can use that law to
11:07 pm
discriminate against all kinds of people. >> it is sad to hear there are other states like arkansas in the same situation and possibly about to sign the same type of bill. >> many prominent bay area business leaders including apple ceo tim cook is taking to social media to voice their disapproval. they say apple is open for everybody and we are deeply disappointed in indiana's new law. ceo tweeted we are canceling programs that require our customers and employees the travel to indiana to face discrimination. two people badly hurt in a commuter train in los angeles are still in the hospital tonight. about 20 others suffered minor injuries when the train struck a car near the usc campus and partially derailed. the operator of the train was seriously hurt and so was the driver of the car. rescuers had to cut him free. he is in grave condition tonight. as for what happened ... >> from witness accounts what is your occupation we have is
11:08 pm
both the train and the vehicle were traveling eastbound. there was an improper turn that occurred. the vehicle got wedged in between the poll and the train dislodged. >> metro rail officials say the accident was the car driver's fault because he turned in front of the train. some major weekend disruption to bart service is on the horizon. starting a week from tomorrow, they will close the line between the fruitvale and the coliseum stations the entire day for track word. workers will be replacing wooden ties and a worn out switch that allow it is trains to switch tracks and the only way to do the work is shut down the line. they plan to do this a dozen times through august. >> we schedule these work periods to place place so they don't convict can as home games. the warriors are a different matter because they are about to enter the playoffs and the schedule is not set. so what we will do is wait until the nba comes out with the playoff schedule and adjust
11:09 pm
our schedule. >> bart will add a free bus bridge between the two stations while the work is going on. tonight, an update on the 12 people who took part in a kidney transplant chain in san francisco. carter evans was there when the recipients met their donors. >> you had a difficult time with illness in your family. >> yes. my son had cancer. diagnosed at 17, and passed away at 21. and my husband also has cancer and his illness was very short. five weeks. before he was gone. >> reporter: after their deaths, she decided to donate one of her kidneys to give another family a second chance. [ applause ] her gift led to the medical chain reaction that ultimately helped six people get a new kidney. this week, they got to meet the strangers who saved their lives. the emotional introduction at the hospital shows the power of the transplant chain. >> the difference between you
11:10 pm
and everyone else in this chain is that you didn't have a loved one who was getting a kidney. >> but they did. i just wanted them to have that quality of life. i want their loved ones to know that they are going to be around. >> reporter: zuly's kidney went to oswaldo, a factory worker whose sister-in-law donated to a dental assistant. her daughter shared with a 60- year-old grandmother whose own daughter gave to mark kim while his sister's kidney helped a 74- year-old designer regain his health. >> we saved overall about 15 or 16 years total on the waiting list when you look at all those people. several of those patients may not have made it that long to get to a transplant on the waiting list. >> how does that feel to be sitting next to the person who saved your life? >> it's amazing. >> reporter: former marine liz torres couldn't donate to her mother miriam. >> what was it like meeting
11:11 pm
this guy today? >> it was something else. i had no idea who i gave it to. he is an amazing guy. >> i will name my kidney corporal. the corporal in the marines. [ laughter ] >> reporter: now mark kim and the others are opening their actions inspire an even bigger transplant chain. a hospital says it is already getting calls. >> thank you. >> reporter: carter evans, san francisco. still ahead, preventing another germanwings disaster without leaving the ground. how the crash is prompting a new push for remote piloted planes. >> and fighting fire with base. the sonics experiment that could change the way we battle forest fires. >> and we are hearing about a warmup in the weather tomorrow. and then, a look ahead at the
11:12 pm
11:13 pm
>> it is a treacherous rescue effort in the french alps as crews try to recover remains from the crash. the co-pilot deliberately flew the plane into the mountainside killing 150 people. it will be weeks before all the remains are recovered and released to family.
11:14 pm
we are hearing a chilling statement that andreas lubitz allegedly made to a former girlfriend. she remembers him saying he would "do something and then everyone would know my name." andreas lubitz may have been hiding a medical condition. in his home, police found medicines for a psychological illness and evidence he was being treated for a vision problem. >> since that crash, more airlines are requiring at least two members of the crew in the cockpit at all times. but tom forman shows us it may be possible to control commercial planes from the ground. >> reporter: watch closely. this plane over england has a crew at the controls, passengers in the back, but something extraordinary is about to happen. a pilot on the ground is taking over. >> control. >> proceed. >> i have control. >> you want control? >> reporter: this is the $94
11:15 pm
million astria project by the company bae. one of several companies around the world to build planes that can be flown remotely. >> it is exactly the same as what the pilots would be doing. >> reporter: military success with drones has driven much of the interest and some efforts are focused on airplanes in hazardous conditions such as hurricane research and fighting wild fires. pilotless planes could be a $400 billion a year global business. so why not passenger flights? first, the airline industry has a remarkable safety record despite high profile disasters and on plane pilots remain the best way to handle problems and retro fitting the planes would cost billions of dollars. and some of the passengers may not be ready. >> i start asking how would i
11:16 pm
feel getting into an airliner without pilots up front and i wouldn't do it. >> though some aircraft can already take off and land on their own, remote piloted passenger planes are likely a long way off. a couple of guys diving in a national park near folsom found a drone with its memory card intact. it was taking pictures of a bridge and crashed into the bridge. then it fell into the water below. these pictures were shot eight months ago. the drone has been underwater since then. >> we found lots of things. this is a first. >> basically, it is a 1,200- dollar error into the water. so that was an expensive day. >> the card also has pictures of the drone's owner. he is not likely to be in trouble. though it is illegal no fly drones in the national park, there are no signs so they

don't usually issue citations. sound, a new way to fight fire. the two seniors at the virginia school say they realized the musical notes work about the same way our breath does when we blow out a candle. the sound waves disrupt the oxygen feeding the flames. they tried it first with high frequencies but then discovered it is all about that bass. they hope the technology can be used to some day help fight forest fires. >> it is kind of a rude sound. you have to agree. >> at first. >> i suppose if it puts out a fire, it is doing a good deed. outside today, we had numbers mostly in the low 80s around the bay area. 83 degrees in spots. high temperatures in the area show 82 in santa rosa. 83 livermore. 78 in san jose. and 76 at fremont. as we look live over the city, the numbers right now as we are trying to get a lock on that
